2014 Mazda 6 estate 2.2 sport nav D
« on: March 02, 2021, 12:45:46 pm »
Hello to all and thank you for letting me join.
I've just recently bought a second hand Mazda, first ever Mazda I've had. After reading a few scary stories about these diesels throwing out  a few engine problems...I thought fu sod it, it looks nice, drives nice F/S/H too so why not.
So far I've been impressed with her. Just wanted to know if anyone has fitted a tow bar to theirs and if you had any issues with the wiring? As I'm searching around trying to find a second hand one, but unable to find a code or type that fits correctly.
Anyone have one for sale perhaps?

Well it is done now. No point of worrying. Maybe your car is already fixed or never had any problems. You can check for recalls on the MOT history DVLA website. Enjoy the car and if something goes wrong, you will assess the situation then.

It seems that you need to cut the bumper and bypass the electrics.

He calls it tow bar bypass relay.

I am not sure how model specific these items are but at this price range, buying a brand new one is not the end of the world.

Just pay attention to the exclussions they advertise and you will be fine.
